Colleen sets the GarrandPartners standard for Account Management from relationship building and strategic thinking to the leadership required to be the nucleus between client partners and agency counterparts. Prior to joining the GarrandPartners family, she worked for 6 years in 5 roles and 3 cities with Publicis Healthcare Communications Group in both Operations and Client Services – including managing a 120-seat inbound/outbound contact center in rural PA.
She has a passion for bringing people together and creating memorable experiences – which is how she started her marketing career behind the wheel of the iconic 27-foot long fiberglass hot dog on wheels as the driver and Brand Ambassador for the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile. In addition to being a “Hotdogger,” she also worked alongside Ronald McDonald while managing PR and events for McDonald’s of Chicagoland.
Colleen holds a communications degree from DePaul University in Chicago and is also a proud graduate of Oscar Mayer’s “Hot Dog High” and McDonald’s “Hamburger University.”
